U.S. commits $150 million for digital transformation in Ukraine
The United States will provide $150 million in support of Ukraine's digital transformation initiatives, including "Mriya" and Prozorro, over the next five years
This was announced by US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink at the Diia Summit, reported by RBC-Ukraine.
Brink announced a new phase in US-Ukraine collaboration for digital transformation—a $150 million commitment over five years for the digital transformation program.
According to her, this funding aims to foster economic development, investments, digital infrastructure improvement, facilitate the digitalization of small and medium-sized businesses, and nurture a conducive business environment in Ukraine. The USA also expresses its intent to support the "Mriya" and Prozorro (Platform for conducting tenders -ed.) systems.
Reference: The "Mriya" educational app seeks to simplify the lives of students, teachers, and parents. Developed to encompass everything a student needs for learning, including information about educational programs, courses, video materials, extracurricular activities, contests, and clubs. Additionally, the app provides features such as tracking class schedules and extracurricular activities.
For teachers, the app offers not only standard lesson materials but also specialized courses to enhance the educational process.
"Students will receive grades and feedback from the teacher. Parents can monitor their child's progress, attendance, and even if they are in a safe location during emergencies. We're introducing a new evaluation tool that highlights a child's strengths," explained Mykhailo Fedorov, the Minister of Digital Transformation.
- Since the commencement of the full-scale war in Ukraine, 70 digital services have been launched. On December 19, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced the inclusion of features for buying and selling cars in Diia, along with the online exchange of housing certificates.
